David and Ginny Adelsheim established vineyards in Oregon

1971 - David and Ginny Adelsheim established vineyards in Oregon

Adelsheim Vineyard, which David Adelsheim and Ginny Adelsheim founded in 1971, is named after them. He has held a variety of positions during the decades-long history of his business, including vineyard manager, winemaker, and manager of sales, marketing, accounting, and plumbing repairs. His early winemaking experience included positions at The Eyrie Vineyards in Oregon and the experimental winery of the Lycée Viticole in Beaune, France.

That was the year David and Ginny Adelsheim made the risky decision to spend their whole life savings on a stunning south-facing piece of land in Oregon’s North Willamette Valley. Adelsheim’s first estate vineyard would be built on this land in the future. Looking back, the Adelsheim family was one of just ten families who produced wine from grapes grown on their lands in that region prior to 1980.
